Stitching Angels

Wish. Everybody should occasionally wish...make plans and dream of things that could be. Small ideas, worked upon can make those dreams come true, A fulfilment of what is your wish?

This is a stitchery I drew a few years ago and have only this week started. I thought I would make a Christmas quilt featuring in angels. The first is WISH. I wont show the entire panel but will give you snippets of it. I have joined a stitching group which meet once a month and had to find a project to do. I dont want to spend a lot of money on stitchery patterns and thought I might as well create my own.
Despite having my own patterns and threads I still managed to out lay considerable funds on a new hoop and wonderweft to back my fabric, and of course a few extra colours to add to the collection.

Well hopefully my stitching will become more uniform but for now I am enjoying the process of sitting and sewing. It is fun to see a drawing come to life with coloured thread
Second panel started...PEACE

2016. January The Month That Was

January the month that was . January flew by and was full of sewing days in-between blackberry picking and jam making. Let's hope the next month is just as fruitful.
